The 2012 DIS Forum Disneyland Paris Awards - The Results!


Thanks to everyone who voted, and without further a do, here are the results for the first category:

Best On Site Hotel

Joint Winners
Disneyland Hotel - 30%
Hotel Sequoia Lodge - 30%





3rd Hotel New York - 15%
4th= Hotel Cheyenne - 10%
4th= Newport Bay Hotel - 10%
6th Hotel Santa Fe - 5%
7th Davy Crockett Ranch - 0%

Disneyland Hotel wins for the 5th time in a row! I've never stayed there myself, maybe one day. However, this year it's a joint win with Sequoia Lodge, somewhere I have stayed, for my honeymoon. Cheyenne still wins for me.

More to come...

Great to have the first result Steve, although you ARE teasing us with just one result! I'm not surprised that the DLH won although I was not overly impressed with it. Don't get me wrong, it's lovely but not worth twice the price of HNY as far as I'm concerned. I wonder has the refurb of SL led to its high number of votes. Haven't been there in 10 years but did really like it when I was there.

Looking forward to the rest of the results!

Best Off Site Hotel

1st= Explorers 25%
1st= Kyriad 25%





3rd= Ibis Val D Europe 13%
3rd= Dream Castle 13%
3rd= Adagio 13%
3rd= Residhome Val d’Europe 13%

I've still not stayed off site do didn't vote myself. I did price it up once but when I added in tickets, even with AP, it came out more expensive. I think I need a tutorial on off site savings!

Best Season

Winner
Christmas - 50%



2nd= Halloween - 17%
2nd= Summer - 17%
4th Winter - 11%
5th Spring - 6%

Christmas was absolutely lovely this year, but I thought Halloween would have gained some ground with the improved decorations on the previous year. Around 2006/2007 Halloween used to be the runaway winner for me, but the drop in theming has me deciding between Christmas and Summer. Love a festive Disneyland Paris but also the nice weather and long hours of summer.

I feel the same, Halloween used to win hands down but Christmas has the edge for me now

Best Hotel Restaurant

Winner
Inventions - 47%



2nd California Grill - 18%
3rd= Parkside Diner - 12%
3rd= Manhattan Restaurant - 12%
5th= Hunters Grill - 6%
5th= Chuckwagon Café - 6%

I couldn't agree more with Inventions winning, and it's almost doubled it's winning margin from the last awards. Such a sumptuous feast of food, in wonderful surroundings and great character interaction. It's pricey, but I think in this case you get what you pay for - a lot!

Nice to see the Manhattan get a mention - this was the first place we ever had dinner in Disneyland Paris when we first visited in July 2002. Also good to the Chuckwagon get some votes, being that it's the restaurant for my second home; Hotel Cheyenne.

Best Disneyland Park Restaurant

WINNER
Walt’s (47%)



2nd= Agrabah Cafe (18%)
2nd= The Blue Lagoon (18%)
4th= Hakuna Matata (6%)
4th= Silver Spur Steakhouse (6%)
4th= Plaza Gardens (6%)

Criminally I've not visited Walt's since 2003, which is pretty poor considering how nice the food was and how great the character interaction was. My beloved Blue Lagoon came in a noble joint 2nd, with another eatery I've not visited; Agrabah Cafe. We could do with one or two more good restaurants in Disneyland Park, and a few less fast food joints.
